Proud as a Peacock: DIY Peacock Costume.4:01 PM
Six months ago I pinned this. Six months prior to that, I decided Genevieve would be a peacock this year after my mom scored an adorable teal shimmery tutu at Wal-Mart for 75% off. So I revisited the tutorial I pinned a week ago and made my own version of the costume. Here it is:
I followed the instructions for the peacock "feathers" to a T. I sort of free handed the shapes onto the felt. I attached them to blue ribbon with pins and tied the ribbon to the tutu. I like that it's not permanent because she loves this tutu and after tomorrow I can take the feathers off and she can wear it for dress up, which tends to happen on Sundays during Patriots games. Don't ask me why.

For my first tutu, I'd say it came out pretty great! I love it and so does Genevieve. Here are a few more photos:
In case you're wondering, the T-shirt came from Wal-Mart. I added a leftover strip of cobalt blue tulle to the front of it. The wings are from Dollar General (which became obvious by the way they wouldn't stay upright!), the felt was from Micheal's and Hobby Lobby (cheaper at H.L.), and the peacock feathers were from Hobby Lobby. I've had the feather-y headband forever.
